    I bought a couple videos yesterday. One was VH live at the Tokyo Dome in '89, pro shot. Excellent quality. Looks like it was recorded right off cable TV, you know? The other tape is a compilation of old interviews (US Fest, ET-1983, etc). While it was cool seeing all this stuff that I had never seen before, I wish the quality wasn't so shitty. It looks like a 5th-generation dub done on a VCR with dirty heads, and the sound is muddy. My copy of the US Fest is somewhere in between.

    To those of you that have some experience with video boots, I have some questions:

    1) How does the Maryland '82 pro shot concert compare in quality to the US Festival, and is it possible to get a CLEAR copy of the US Fest?

    2) Does anyone have any of the VH "compilation" videos (interviews, live clips, videos, etc) that I've seen for sale? How would you describe the quality of these tapes?

    ANY info would be appreciated....

    Thanks!

    I got the Maryland 1982 concert and the quality is a C , but the concert is great !
    The San bernardino is about B+/A- !
    Is very difficult to find concerts with Dave in good quality ! U can find the video collection in good quality , but not the concert ! ...
    Believe me : i got at home about 30 video concerts of VH !

    beleive it or not i agree with swollen princess on this point...

    i think part of the problem is that when these shows were recorded home video technology and vcr's were'nt that great- by the time sammy and gary came along vcr's got a LOT better and now the vhs boots can be decent-
    i've never seen a dave/vh boot above b/b+ quality--

    R u meaning the Montreal 1984 ?! ... Yes it's true ... it's good considering the age ! B++ for sure , but I think the best audience shot I got are from 1998 tour with Cerone ! ... Some of this concerts seems pro-shot and not audience !!!

    Knowing that the video is an audience boot is still good for the age ! ... Montreal 1982 wasn't so good ! ...

    I just recieved the US Fest tape today. The visual quality is veeeeeeeeeeery bad, the sound is much better. But I am very excited, that was the first time I saw them live with DLR. 300'000 fuckin' people singing Bottoms Up, it just blew me away!

    Hey Eddie italian,
    do you have an original tape or a copy? Mine is a copy of a copy of a copy...
    If you rate a very often used VHS-cassette a B+, then mine is an average C, with some B parts, but also some D parts where the screen is completely fuzzled and you can hardly recognize anything. Where did you get yours from? I paid 15$ for mine at E-Bay.

    Hey that would be great!! Maybe i can help you with the NTSC-PAL duplicate.
    Just at the moment i'm trying to copy the us fest from ntsc to pal, i don't know whether it works or not. It will be finished in 30 minutes, so i'll be back then. I connected the second VCR to the TV, not to the first VCR with the source tape, maybe that makes a difference....

    I'll be back.
